She got a perfect score on ID and was only one of 11 students to get a perfect score.

Dan McArthur gave the end of year financial report for the school district. He said, “The money you’re bringing in the door is coming out the door at the same rate.”
McArthur added, “I feel very comfortable with where you sit. I don’t see you in trouble. But I don’t see you sitting on a ton of money either.”
